CAM290 commented on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate ...:

I have this game and I'm a big Castlevania fan. I rather enjoyed this entry, glad they brought the whip combat back. The 3D is rather interesting in the backgrounds adding some very nice depth. My faveorite thing about this title is the soundtrack, it's really quite special.

@BestBuck123
Nintendo has already stated that they will not be doing any pricecuts this early on, instead they are relying on heavy hitting titles and bundle deals this holiday season.
This autumn there is evidence that there will be two large updates for Wii U and 3DS that will focus on cross integration of miiverse in which each system can advertise games for the other. Nintendo will let Wii U feed off of the success of the 3DS by advertising games for Wii U on the 3DS's e-shop and the 3DS's miiverse.

Wii Sport nevered interested me, i played it for maybe an hour and a half when i first got my Wii at launch. Nintendo land is so much more fun for me because it blends traditional gaming with Wii Style motion with DS style touch screen gaming. To me Nintendo Land is very overlooked.

@Owlynator Make sure you get your facts right before you post:
"These days it's the power that determines the success of a console and I'm sure Nintendo knows that by now."
Not sure where you get this information from. If that were the case the Wii U would be selling like hotcakes now considering its estimated to be around 50% more powerful than the current gens most powerful console, the PS3. Also if this were true, the PS3 would have outsold both the Wii and Xbox 360 this gen.

"Wii U may turn out to be another Gamecube (ironically the GC was the most powerful console that gen)"
You're wrong. The Gamecube was the second most powerful in raw graphical power. The original Xbox was the powerhouse of last gen.

I would pick this game up though i'm not exactly too familiar with the series, I played one on the Gamecube long ago or maybe it was Xbox i can't remember. My problem with some of these games is that they are being released on Wii U yet earlier installments of the series aren't on Wii U or the previous Wii, so if i get interested i have to buy more systems to get the whole collection...

The Wii U situation is like watching a spaceship evacuating a doomed earth with your loved ones on board finally take off. There wasn't enough room for you. After what seemed to be a stalled out engine (and certain doom) finally lifting off & carrying your family to safety you can't help but smile.

Man i'd be a good father! (and a good in game scene developer xD)

I'm not sure how things are nowadays for younger gamers, but I remember when i was around 10 (now 24) i had quite a few M rated titles on my N64. My mom or grandma could always acknowledge & confirm that they were ok with it to the lady (or gentlemen) over the counter when i would purchase these games with allowance money. Funny enough, I was just ID carded at Best Buy when i purchased Ninja Gaiden 3 for Wii U, I showed my ID card and laughed. "How old do you think I am?" I asked the lady over the counter. "hmm 16 or 17?" I laughed and said "wow now your just trying to sweet talk me!"

CAM290 commented on Pikmin 3 Causes Wii U Sales Growth In Japan:

Nintendo is building a deprivation strategy (possibly not on purpose). Leaving gamers (especially Nintendo gamers) starving for new/sequal titles on recently new systems (3DS & Wii U). This in turn seems to be over-hyping and scaring loyalist into hungrily snatching up these titles and boosting sales of the home console. This was also seen during the 3DS drought. A very cleaver strategy indeed, even if it's not done on purpose...
